Frequently Asked Questions
Below are questions and answers to the most common topics about wreaths and how to decorate your home with them.
What Does a Wreath on the Front Door Mean?
Back in the 16th century, wreaths were a symbol of hope and spring during the winter season. It’s also believed that they’re hung on the front door as a way to invite the spirit of Christmas to enter the home. These days, wreaths can be used to decorate the front door whether it’s spring, fall, or winter.
What Size Wreath Should I Put On My Front Door?
Measure the height and width of your front door. A wreath should cover 50 to 75% of the door’s width and shouldn’t be wider or taller than the hanging surface. For a standard 30 to 36-inch door, allot about 6 inches of space on each side of the wreath. Choose a bigger wreath and leave at least 2 inches of space on each side for a more dramatic effect.
How Do I Hang a Wreath on My Front Door?
Use a wreath hook for your front door to make decorating easier and more convenient. This way, you also won’t have to worry about damage from adhesives or screws. Our metal wreath hanger for front doors is adjustable and can support wreaths weighing up to 20 pounds.
What Can I Put On My Front Door Instead of a Wreath?
Swags and hanging baskets are great alternatives if you’re looking for ways to decorate your front door other than with a wreath. Check our collection of Christmas swags & teardrops, fall swags & hanging baskets, and spring hanging baskets & window boxes and you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your home any time of the year.
